New Member Luncheon
On Sunday, October 7th, the Care Committee will be sponsoring a “New Member” luncheon after services. Everyone is invited to attend. The menu will include appetizers, wings, baked beans, and macaroni and cheese (all the basics). There are signup sheets for people interested in providing food.
Church committee leaders will share what their respective committee does and solicit participants. More importantly, we will all get to become acquainted with our new members and welcome them into the life of the church.
Flapjack Fundraiser Postponed
Due to personal issues, the United Methodist Men have postponed their Flapjack Fundraiser. It will not be held on October 20th as scheduled. We are currently working with Applebee’s Restaurant to find an alternate date, and we will notify you as soon as a new date is known.
If you have already purchased your tickets, know that they will be good for the next fundraiser. Or you can return your tickets to your seller for a full refund.
